Summer is upon us and this is certainly the busiest time of the year at my clinic. Despite this economy, pets continue to get into trouble during the summer months. There are a few things that we commonly see in the summer which can be avoided by using some preventative grooming techniques.

This month’s topic is horse parasite control, specifically what products D&B Supply carries and how they work. Currently your choices include: Quest (moxidectan), Equimax (Ivermectin/Praziquantel), Rotectin P (Pyrantel), Ivercare(Ivermectin), Safeguard (Fenbendazole), Stonglycare (Pyrantel), Iverease (Ivermectin), and Horse Health (Ivermectin). As you can see there are basically four main active ingredients with praziquantel thrown in for tapeworm control: moxidectan, ivermectin, pyrantel and fenbendazole.
